We're planning a home/water birth for our first baby and I'm wondering if I made a huge mistake in having so many people there with me. It will be me and DH plus our 2 midwives, my mom and sister and now his mom. I'm starting to feel like that is a way too many people. Plus I have this feeling that my dad would enjoy being there and while that doesn't bother me I'm afraid that mean his wife will want to come too and she is just too nervous and and frantic and I don't want that kind of energy around me.
Would it be terrible to tell people I've changed my mind that day (or have DH do it) or not tell anyone until it's too late?
I thought I would want to be surrounded by my family but now I feel like I might get self-conscious or irritated.
Anyone been here before and having this dilemma now?
